Man Utd defender Jones: Tuanzebe a terrific young player

Manchester United defender Phil Jones is confident Axel Tuanzebe will make it at Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old made his first United appearance since 1 January 2018 in Saturday's win over Leicester and Jones thinks further action in a red shirt is inevitable over the coming weeks and months.

Jones told Inside United, “Axel's a terrific young player. I've known him for a while now, he's been in the reserves and worked his way up and deserves his chance.

“He was out on loan last season at Villa, did terrifically well for them and helped them get promoted to the Premier League, so he's experienced enough now and he'll get his chance and he'll take it."
